I'm a bit of an amateur musician; play bass for izzie voodoo. I also produce my own stuff, but haven't played any of it live for a decade or two, and i've never gigged solo. 

i've been offered a solo slot at a gig in February, and it's only when I started putting the set together that I realised just how anti-theistic most of my songs are. Not normally a problem here in secular Blighty, but it occurs that if any of my work colleagues turns up I may offend them; there's at least one Catholic and one Jehovah's Witness, and I don't know whether one or two others have equally banal delusions.  

To give you a flavour (if you're interested) ; older demos of one or two of the tracks I'll be doing are here. *

'God Spot' is the one I'm particularly concerned about; the latest version is a bit longer and a lot more specific about the evils of religion. Updated, improved cuts of 'Live and Uncut' and 'Treasured Possession' will also be on the set, as well as a song based on a Christopher Hitchens quote (not uploaded anywhere yet) and another, rather snarky song about the Rapture (also not uploaded).

Should I do the unexpurgated versions of my songs, or try to tone them down a bit? Interested in Nexus views.









*BTW, I have no illusions about my lack of musical ability, I just do it 'cos I like it. Not looking for praise, and not surprised if you think my music sucks!

Sod the god squad! they don't consider the cringing of us Atheists every time they "bless" or "damn us".... I for one am of the opinion that censoring your thoughts about religion would be detrimental to your own feeling of integrity. GIVE EM HELL! (excuse the phrase!")
